Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : dhcp (MDVSA-2009:312)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in ISC DHCP :

Integer overflow in the ISC dhcpd 3.0.x before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before
3.1.1; and the DHCP server in EMC VMware Workstation before 5.5.5
Build 56455 and 6.x before 6.0.1 Build 55017, Player before 1.0.5
Build 56455 and Player 2 before 2.0.1 Build 55017, ACE before 1.0.3
Build 54075 and ACE 2 before 2.0.1 Build 55017, and Server before
1.0.4 Build 56528; allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (daemon crash) or execute arbitrary code via a malformed DHCP
packet with a large dhcp-max-message-size that triggers a stack-based
buffer overflow, related to servers configured to send many DHCP
options to clients (CVE-2007-0062).

Stack-based buffer overflow in the script_write_params method in
client/dhclient.c in ISC DHCP dhclient 4.1 before 4.1.0p1, 4.0 before
4.0.1p1, 3.1 before 3.1.2p1, 3.0, and 2.0 allows remote DHCP servers
to execute arbitrary code via a crafted subnet-mask option

ISC DHCP Server is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the
improper handling of DHCP requests. If the host definitions are mixed
using dhcp-client-identifier and hardware ethernet, a remote attacker
could send specially crafted DHCP requests to cause the server to stop
responding (CVE-2009-1892).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0

This update provides fixes for this vulnerability.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.7
Public Exploit Available : true
